Pepe Reina: Linked with possible move to Barcelona

Reports emanating from Spain have claimed that Barcelona could make a move for Reina next year, with Victor Valdes expected to leave at the end of the current season.

Barcelona were credited with an interest in Reina prior to his move to Napoli on loan this summer and the Spain international admitted last month he was unlikely to return to Liverpool at the end of his loan spell.

Reina is flattered by the rumours of Barcelona's interest, but insists he is focused on doing his best for Napoli.

"I am happy that my name has been linked with Barcelona," Reina told Radio Catalunya. "But right now I'm focused on Napoli and doing well here.

"In the summer, we'll see what happens.

"There has been nothing established yet, but I think Barcelona will have a long list of eligible candidates to replace Valdes - should he leave."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
